Let’s first off make this clear to all that this is for Sunday. There are no weather conditions due to Henri that are in the forecast for today, tonight, Saturday or Saturday night. Today we are in the throws of a very warm and tropical air mass. An upper disturbance is creating some scattered showers and thunderstorms on the radar with more numerous showers and thunderstorms on the regional radar in Delaware, Maryland, and Northeast Virginia that are inching northeast. Most of that rain should remain in those areas and gradually weaken as we move through the day. Watch for scattered showers or thunderstorm elsewhere from Eastern Pennsylvania to Southern New England with highs today mostly in the 80s.

There are no issues for tonight and Saturday as it remains very warm and humid with lows in the upper 60s and lower 70s tonight and highs in the 80s on Saturday. Sometimes ahead of tropical systems we see nice weather the day before but an upper low that is part of this equation complicates matters and we will see clouds and some scattered afternoon and evening showers or downpours.

Sunday weather conditions deteriorate in the watch area described. The general rule is if you are to the west of the track of the center of Henri you will generally experience more rain and less wind while if you are to the east the opposite is true. Trying to knot down specifics is a bit difficult. We have a full moon Sunday which will mean higher than normal tides as it is. Right now a 2 to 4 ft surge is forecast and if this occurs at high tide it will at least create moderate coastal flooding in the storm surge watch areas.

All but one of the hurricane track models shows a landfall somewhere from Long Island to Southern New England. If you in the watch area weather conditions deteriorate during the day Sunday with the worst of it late afternoon and evening. The storm will be transitioning at some point where we begin to see the impacts of the cooler ocean and the shifting of rain to the west side. The storm is forecast to move inland into Connecticut or Massachusetts Sunday night into Monday morning.
